Practice on Proposal writing in Research Funding (October, 19th, 2022)


Central competences on proposal writing for Third-Party funding are an integral part of scientific education. To this end, we are offering a course for young academics considering or working on a draft for a research proposal (DFG or similar).

After sharing general information we discuss your questions on your research concepts or drafts for proposals. One of the Senior Scientific Advisors (Foschungsmentor:in), at TU Darmstadt, will share her or his knowledge from the perspective of both reviewer and applicant of research proposals.


  • How do I write a successful research proposal?
  • What needs to be considered regarding formalities and content?
  • How do I enhance my chances in the process of the proposal application?

Target group: Advanced doctoral candidates and Post-Docs of all disciplines who work on a research proposal or plan to do so
